When an adept is fully awakened, he experiences what we call The Knowing. He simply knows. The knowledge flashes into his mind like a bird that flies in through an open window. Some say that they hear a bell ring as the knowledge appears. We adepts call this the Bell of Node. Almost everyone has either experienced or knows of someone who has experienced this phenomena, as it is as old as the human race. The trick is to know what to do with it. It is a talent that can be developed by making use of the old three Ps: Prudence, Patience, and Perseverance. Mostly, it just takes practice, and most adepts work at it on the side until it begins to appear often enough to be of value to them. Our intent is to first elevate the self and fulfill the self. Then, that done, an adept then draws others to him/her and commences to open them up and make them aware. Remember, there is strength in numbers, and we realize the value in ranking the numbers in our favor. Share the knowing.
Of course, the knowing is often fickle and when one novice can’t quite get the whole picture, he might call in other more experienced adepts who will help with the rest of it. You see, there is strength in numbers, and though an ant can’t kill a buffalo, an army of them can sure eat one. So the very first thing to remember is to keep an open mind and pay attention to all that is within the scope of your consciousness. Seeing and knowing have simple beginnings, rooted in the dust of the Earth. Take it one day at a time, lay your foundation, and then build upon it. If your first attempts are less than impressive, apply patience and try again. Remember, what is difficult today is easy tomorrow. The fact that you can’t find your shoes in the morning only means that you didn’t pay attention to where you put them the night before. Pay attention!
